Vista Lawyers Helping You Through The Divorce Process
At Gavin & Dersch Law and Mediation, we want to know what is keeping you up at night. Are you worried about your relationship with your children? Protecting your family business? Or, how you are going to support yourself after divorce? No matter what your concerns, we can help.
In meetings with us, we explain the law in detail as it applies to you. We print out the applicable cases and statutes to your case to show you the law instead of just telling you the law. That way, if you ever wake up at 3 a.m. thinking about your case, you can review the printed materials.
From our offices in Del Mar and Vista, California, our firm helps individuals navigate the divorce process efficiently, while protecting their rights.
In Every Divorce, We Have One Goal: Ending Your Case
Divorce and other family law disputes can be emotionally and financially draining. At Gavin & Dersch Law and Mediation, our goal is to end your case as quickly as possible. Our attorneys are skilled litigators and firm negotiators. We use every tool in our arsenal, including litigation, negotiation and mediation, to get you through the process and on with your life. We believe in “settlement when reasonable, litigation when necessary™.”
Dividing Your Assets During A Divorce
During a divorce, all marital property, including equity or debt, must be divided. At Gavin & Dersch Law and Mediation, we fight to help you receive what is fair and reasonable for you. We work hard to get property divisions that ensure you leave your marriage in the most financially secure manner possible.
Common items divided during divorce include:
- The family home
- Pensions and retirement accounts
When individuals own sophisticated properties — such as complex investment portfolios, businesses and other income-producing properties — the property division process becomes more complex. Each piece of property must be analyzed to determine its fair market value and cash flow potential.
At Gavin & Dersch Law and Mediation, we have an extensive network of certified public accountants (CPAs), forensic accountants, valuation specialists and other financial experts to help ensure a fair valuation of high-value assets. When handling cases involving complex properties, we collaborate with these professionals to ensure property division plans adequately protect our clients’ wealth while maximizing equity and cash flow.
High net worth assets often lead to more contentious disputes. Many individuals worry divorce will cause them to lose control of their business, or that they will be forced to sell valuable assets.
We think outside the box. Our lawyers develop creative property division plans that preserve the assets that matter to you, without causing lengthy and expensive litigation.
